What’s New at Oh Yarn It

It’s June – my favorite month!
Seems like everything happens in June – birthdays, anniversaries,summer solstice, and the celebration of Oh Yarn It’s opening – June 21 to 25! 

It’s also the month that Knit In Public Day occurs and you can participate in that by going to the McPherson Public Library on Saturday, June 11 during their regular hours (9AM – 6 PM) and knitting in public!  I also suggest you check out (literally!) their collection of knitting and crochet books.  For example, they have the brand new Vampire Knits book with patterns inspired by the Twilight series; the “Bella Mittens” are wonderful – and I have a pair I knit up over the winter on display in the store.  

And, in case one Knit In Public isn’t enough for you – and it’s not for me – come knit, or crochet, in public with us on the morning of June 25th (also a Saturday) from 9 to 11 as part of our celebration here at Oh Yarn It!  We’ll be sitting in front of the store showing the world (or at least South Main Street) why needlework is awesome.  If it isn’t too hot (June after all).  If it’s too hot, we’ll turn down the air, open the doors and sit semi-in-public!  Oh, and there will be food too.

Ah, June, such a busy month!

Socks! Socks! Socks!  Did you know, if you can knit socks, you can knit baby hats and mittens?  Come learn to knit socks on June 11 from 2 PM to 4 PM (then you can take your new skill to the library and show off) and June 18 from 2 PM to 4 PM.   Call (620-504-5001) or email (oyarnitshop@gmail.com) if you want to sign up – the class is limited to 10 so sign up fast!  $25 for the class (and your supplies).  The morning of Saturday the 11th is also beginning knitting, so if you don’t know how to knit yet, come learn then go to the library and show off!

So that’s what’s coming up – but “what’s new?” you ask!  After all that’s the title of this little piece.  Well, just this morning I opened a box with chart keepers (a must if you prefer charts to written directions), view sizers (to size both your needles and your gauge) and wooden circulars that are just the perfect size for doing 2-at-a-time socks!  And everytime a truck drives by I jump thinking it might be UPS since another order of needles and hooks is on it’s way for delivery! 

Dates to keep in mind for June:

June 4 – beginning crochet

June 11 – beginning knitting, 1st day of sock class, Knit In Public at the McPherson Public Library

June 18 – beginning crochet, 2nd day of sock class

June 21 to 25 – Oh Yarn It Celebration Week!
